Going.  Got hotels, but no tix yet.  Watching the aftermarket... and the forecast.

They keep upping the temp but also upping the wind.  So far it's pretty steady at -15C windchill.  Right now trend is better temps (since yesterday).  If it starts to trend down again, expect more tix up for sale.  It takes a certain type to sit in colder than -15C windchill for 4 hours.

Just scored my tickets!  Very fair deal on StubHub so I bit.  Normally I gamble until the last minute, but my wife said "no way" this time around.   Grin  So play it safe and nice C-line tickets well below face, I can't complain.  I don't mind bailing out some SSK STH.  Cheesy

Now I get to sit back, relax, and wait.  We'll all look back fondly one day at "those years we went to the GC 3 times in a row"...

Hey, now that it's winter, there's no longer any time difference between WPG/SSK, right?  I always get bitten by that little quirk.  And it's always important as for some reason I'm always rolling into town right before kickoff.

And what's/where's the best/safest park & ride if I'm not at one of the hotels?  One allowing an easy exit out the west side of the city would be ideal.

Yes Sask is now on Central standard time like Manitoba. DST they match mountain time. They never change clocks in the tumbleweeds. Always on standard time.

Drive carefully guys, and remember there was a gapper who was proud of himself for going out on the highway and driving 80km/hr to slow down the Bomber fans who were driving out for the LDC. Be loud and proud!!!

  The 5-0 will be out in full force I am sure. Day after the Banjo Bowl I rode by motorcycle through Regina on my way to Saskatoon and I counted 5 times cops in position with radar or had already pulled someone over. Do not push your luck.

Check now, I'm starting to see sub-$200 prices between the 30's!  I bought mine a day too early, oh well, I knew I'd likely miss the super cheap ones.  Sub-$200 is under half price!  The equilibrium will be found soon, whether that's now at $200 or it goes below $100.

I'm in 639.  Look at you guys, you're all 100-level!  Scared of the 6 flights of stairs, or is that where all the good parties are gonna happen?  Cheesy Tongue Cool

Funny, I'm basically in the mirror image of where I sit at IGF.  Love the bird's eye view.

If prices keep showing up below $200 everyone needs to get working on convincing their cheap friends to come along!

Radio: does CKRM or whoever have any GC day/week coverage planned on the radio?  I'm wondering if there will be anything to tune into while driving in, and then around Regina.

I really like that CKRM Riders radio lady!  But I think in the final SSK game show she said that was it for her for the year.

I think we are very close to you. Tour managers say our LDC tickets are pretty much the same as our GC tickets . That number is familiar to me.

I think it helped that ticketmaster released a bunch of tickets at regular prices.  No reason to buy second hand tickets off ticketmaster when you can at the very lest get some for face value.

See you there!
wish I was going but the reality is just spending 30K on dental implants and a huge unexpected vet bill for our 2 year old Schnauzer who nearly died.   

I was lucky enough to go in 2019 and got to check one off my bucket list.....have too much fun and I'd love to be with you dyed in the wool Bomber fans this weekend.

I was at 2019 in calgary too since I live here. Would have gone to this one, but still dealing with some post Covid after effects. Been to several labour day weekend games in Regina though (one in the new stadium). Probably best bet for transport is the park and ride buses. Several pickup points in Regina. Taxis may be hard to come by unless you go early to the stadium.

Carls is good for the price.  But I ate there 3 times during the LDC b/c Fuddruckers closed both Sunday and LD Monday, so I need something different this time!

If you take a numbered shuttle, just go back to your number.  But the downtown loop one I took for LDC didn't have a number and no signs and I just kept walking back to where they let us off and there it was.  Just ask around, most greenie fans will know what to do.

I'm doing the Mall shuttle this time, so we'll see how that one turns out!

We were passing by the same place around the same time then!  Garbage highways, eh?  Yikes.  I got home at 10pm, just in time to put my littlest daughter to bed: a special late night up waiting for daddy & big bro.

She got a new Gainer stuffie to take to bed, to go with her Buzz & Boomer.  Yes, we now have traitor merch in this house.  But I knew she'd love it, so I had to buy it.  When she's a bit older I'll show her how she can make believe Buzz & Boomer are beating the tar out of Gainer  Grin Grin Grin
